    The Twins by Nancy Calder, 2018-2019 Winner of Grand Prize in the Representational Professional category.

    We've completed our 4th year producing this amazing painting contest—amazing because of the quality of the painting entries and the caliber of artists entering. The Grand Prizes ($1,000.00 1ST PRIZE, $250.00 2ND PRIZE) have now been awarded and sent to the winners, thanks to annual judges Kathy Duley and Linda Corderman. Please see the winners and scroll below to see all the contenders (Finalists and Best in Show winners) from the entire 2018-2019 annual competition.

    Professional artist Brian LaSaga expressed his shock and total surprise at winning the First Grand Prize ($1,000.00 cash USD) for his painting "Hillside Relic" entered in the 2017-18 Gateway International Painting Competition. Upon hearing the news, Brian wrote: "Winning the grand prize was totally unexpected on my part simply because there is so much great talent out there. Over the years I've observed that high realism didn't get much attention in art competitions. I'm very happy to see that I was wrong. Thank you Victoria and Tim and of course the final judge Kathy Duley for selecting my work over many other such great pieces."
